  1. Hi,

    On Redmi Note 5a in Developer options I have
    OEM unlocking turned on
    and
    USB debugging turned on.
    The Mi Unlock status says unlocked. The lock image is opened.

    I have installed ADB on my mac.
    I put the phone in fastboot mode.
    On the mac terminal entering: fastboot devices brings up the device number.
    When I type: fastboot flashing unlock – I get the following

    FAILED (remote: Token verification failed, reboot the device)

    What is the issue here??
    Please help!

    1. If your phone is already unlocked, then why are you trying the fastboot flashing unlock again?
